Religion and Race in the United States: Where Are We?

February 10, 2015


Join us for a thought-provoking and heart-opening evening as we explore the intersection of religion and race in the United States with two distinguished speakers: the Rev. Ray Hammond, founder and pastor of Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Boston, and Mark Oppenheimer, New York Times columnist and the Corcoran Visiting Chair in Christian-Jewish Relations at Boston College. The panelists will discuss issues of civil rights, religious freedom and the ongoing challenges we face in integrating these values into our society. The conversation will focus on the recent tragedies in Ferguson, Mo., and elsewhere, and the role religious communities can play in creating a more just and compassionate nation. Moderated by Celene Ayat Ibrahim-Lizzio, Islamic scholar-in-residence at Hebrew College and Andover Newton Theological School.
